Son, 38, owns and manages a rice farming business in Ang Snoul district, while her husband works in construction to support the family. Together, they are able to earn an average income of $7.00 USD per day. They endure the hardships and difficulties they encounter in life because they want to educate their three children and ensure a bright future for them.
With the requested loan of $1,200 USD, Son wants to buy a motorcycle to better her standard of living and satisfy her family’s needs. With this loan, Son’s family can reduce their daily expenses for transportation, saving the money for future family emergencies. In the future, Son plans to further improve her farming business and increase her rice production.
